    Phew... I'm glad I use Linux

    I noticed the VFT favorite.ico for terraforums has been replaced with the standard VBulletin favorite icon.
    Probably not high on Andrew's list of priorities, but I too miss this. I usually have many browser tabs open, so the favicon helps me quickly identify them.

    Yah, the redirect what there.. I checked the site it tried to go to and the site was shutdown.... I'm not sure if anyone here had access to it before that, but I checked it pretty much as soon as it started happening and the site was down and I shut down TF to make sure people stayed safe while I worked on it.. But checking is ALWAYS good idea... if you've possibly been exposed, or you just haven't checked in a while there are free versions of stuff too for those of you that don't like paying like avg free... http://free.avg.com/us-en/free-antivirus-download

    Yeah, I overwrote the fav icon... I gotta refind if I have it to put it back.
    Thanks

    Avast Home Edition is also free and has been fairly decent for me. Have used it for a few years without issue.

    I just finished scanning my macintosh and did find one infected file but it had nothing to do with terraforums.com. If you are using Mac OS X then I recommend that you download clamxav ( http://www.clamxav.com/index.php ). It is a great -and free- Mac virus scanner.
